I'm a Needle Felting Maniac!

With the warm weather a comin' I am definitely transitioning from one woolie craft to another. Even though wool diaper covers are still awesome in the summer, I want to switch things up and start honing my other wool loves--needle felting and spinning.

Last night, I acccidentally stabbed myself only 10 times and drew blood about 4 times--this is definitely a sign that I'm getting better at needle felting! Don't worry--I always bandage before I touch my creations so that they don't get all bloody. Wanna see what I made?



Meet Mervin the Itty Bitty Guinea Piggie.


This lil' guy measures about 1 inch in length and 1/2 inch in height. He comes with a yummy bed of green grass that measures 2 inches wide and 3 inches long. Mervin is needle felted from Mauch Chunky Wool Roving and his bed of grass is hand felted as well.


Isn't he guinea-licious?

I know you remember...


Flickr Pro Baybeeee!

Okay, I did it.... I made the leap and bought a flickr pro account. I know, I know, it doesn't seem like a big deal but I'm a super-d-duper cheapskate and I don't like to pay to get anything that I can for free. I love flickr.com and I'm super addicted to posting my photos and monkeying around with the groups but I wanted to be able to add more than 200 photos and have more options for organizing them. Now I get to post all the photos I want! muhahahahahahaa!

Another cool thing about the pro account is that now I have stats about where my view are coming from! Very cool! I just love all that informationy stuff...

check check check it out!

Public Service Announcement: Drinking Booze while Sewing can be Hazardous!

Okay, I admit it, I had one too many beers last night... Then I got the urge to sew, the machine was calling my name and there was a cute lil' pair of diaper covers just screaming to be finished. I was sewing along (my stitches weren't quite as straight as they usually are) and CHACHUNK! a needle goes all the way through my finger tip then breaks off. However, one good thing about one too many beers is that it didn't hurt as bad as I thought it would... at least until this morning.

See where the needle went right through my finger???? ewwww....

Then, to top it all off, this morning I accidentally stepped on a felting needle. Those little SOBs have barbs on it so as I pulled it stung sooooo bad!

geeze la-weeze....I shouldn't be allowed to craft!
